A date has finally been announced for the switching on of the world's most powerful particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider. The LHC is located in a 27km-long circular tunnel that lies beneath the Franco-Swiss border. The first attempt to circulate a beam of particles around the tunnel will take place on September 10, 2008 according to a Thursday statement by the LHC's builders, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (Cern).
